White ponni rice is one of the traditional varieties of rice cultivated in South India. Since the Kaveri is also called ‘Ponni’ in Tamil literature, the rice could have been named after the river. Also this rice variety is thin and suitable for cooking. When cooked, the rice becomes milk whitish in color. So the farmers named this variety as flowering white ponni rice. Ponni rice could be cultivated in any land, with high quality water. This rice is grown using natural farming methods without the use of pesticides, weedicide or chemical fertilizers.
